Could you send me the link for that dynamic flexibility program by Cressey? I would love to look over it and discuss what you liked and didn’t like about it, as well as why you actually lost range of motion after performing it for a year. Not trying to be pessimistic here, but sometimes reading an article is not enough to fully understand and refine the instructions put forth by an author. Just food for thought.
Dynamic flexibility is a must. Robertson and Cressey have great programs. I find it really hard to believe you went backwards with injuries. I as well would like to know what you were doing and what injuries you did occur[/quote]
Correction - the program/article was not by Eric Cressey. My dynamic flexibility program was based on a section of Mark Vestegeen’s (spelling?) book. The book is titled “Core Performance”, the chapter is Pre-movement Prep.
My activity at the time included a “modified Bulgarian” weight lifting routine as described by Christian Thibaudeau in his newsletter. This is where I experienced lower & mid back injuries.
I also noticed less “freedom of movement” & flexibility when playing tennis which I do periodically during the summer. Because I only play tennis during the summer it allows me to compare physical attributes (flexibility) from year to year
